A Simple Thank you
I've been slumpin' in a big way since I got back from So Cal Mania. Haven't had much mojo since the last card post I made here. Today I received some very sad news, my best friend's father- in- law passed away last night. I always feel inadequate when it comes to what to do to acknowledge the passing of someone who is dear to someone who is dear to me. I'm not sure that makes any sense, but I do know that I am very sad today because she is so sad.
I decided the best gift would be something useful for her and heartfelt from me. I know that there seem to never be enough thank you cards that need to be sent to celebrate life in all its forms, from birth to death. Little did I know when I saw Lori's card back a bit ago that it would be the perfect solution to my creative slump and getting these cards done. Thanks Lori for your beautiful inspiration. It certainly gave me the inspiration I needed and I was able to complete 24 cards this morning after I took the kids to school.
I simplified Lori's card for mass production and changed the colors a bit, but kept the sets and the layout the same. This is a simply stated card that is perfect for its intention, and I know that they will be appreciated.
